What did TMC MP Abhishek Banerjee say?

Kolkata Police SP Devjit Chattopadhyay was seriously injured during the BJP’s ‘Nabanna Chalo’ campaign. He was admitted at the SSKM Hospital in Kolkata with a broken arm. Trinamool Congress MP Abhishek Banerjee had visited the injured Debjit Chatterjee at the hospital.

Addressing reporters there, Abhishek Banerjee had said, “Hooliganism has taken place during the ‘Nabanna Chalo’ campaign. ‘Dadagiri’ is going on. Police personnel have been beaten up. Police personnel were beaten with iron rods. A police jeep was set on fire. If the police opened fire, the common people would have been harmed.”

“I salute you Devjit babu. I salute your restraint. If I were you and there was such brutality against the police in front of me, I would have shot them (BJP workers) in the head,” he added.
